I'm having hot flashes and rude outbursts

I'm going to start taking tennis lessons

I'm wrapping up some overdue home projects

I can't believe it's almost August-I really don't want my kids to start school

I'm starting to catch up on Macy's one year scrapbook

I'm reading my first Jodi Piccoult (sp?) book this month

Macy is hilarious!

I'm growing my hair out

Happy Birthday to Macy Marie!

Macy turned 2 this month! I know it sounds so cliche' but I really can't believe how fast the time has flown by. We had a family birthday party at Build-A-Bear and it was perfect. It was a great evening spent in the AC! and she really understood that we were celebrating her birthday, it was so cute to watch her. She got a baby doll stroller (which grandpa let her walk around the mall with) and a Barbie computer to learn her letters and numbers and a sweet talking baby doll from gma. Garrett picked out a monkey that he named "vines" and she picked out "sweet cream" the teddy bear. Happy Birthday Macy!

Cupcake Party!

We read "If you give a cat a cupcake" and decorated cupcakes with the neighbor boys today. Whom, by the way could be considered our cousins b/c for 1) their mother is like an older and wiser sister to me and 2) the boys love eachother so much. It's a really sweet blessing to watch my children want to be with them EVERY day! Anyway, after we finished decorating the cupcakes, the boys carried them(with baskets!) to the pool and very modestly offered their cupcakes to all the lifeguards and people visiting the pool. Awwwe, it was so cute to watch how embarrassed, but excited they were to walk up to people and offer them something they made. So stinkin' sweet...which by the way, is exactly what I needed this week. A refresher. That kids feel accomplished when doing something nice for someone else. Goodness. An extra bonus if the boys' mom is reading: While we were decorating, the oldest said, " This is so fun, I guess it is true that happiness is doing fun things together." (double aawwe)

We went camping (cabin style) at the river for a few days and had so much fun. Between my brother's family and ours, we have 5 kids under 6, so it was pretty busy but so great. We floated the river, swam, played in the splash pad and crafted to our hearts content. We had smores (my favorite dessert) two nights in a row and cried when we left. We've decided this spot is going to be an annual event for our families and we're excited to return. Enjoy the pics! P.S. aren't my nieces and nephew KEY-UTE!
